Quote:
Ahead of the vote Wednesday, House Republican leaders pressed a new line of attack, accusing Democrats of thwarting the will of the people by not committing to give the bill an up-or-down vote in the Senate.
Ok Republicans of BHTV, let me have it. When Dems were using budget reconciliation to pass part of the ACA, that was a ridiculous end-run around Senate rules. So naturally these Republicans are displaying a thuggish disrespect for the rights of Congressional minorities, right?
